does any one know how i can close a multithreaded application ?

I cannot check for a boolean type, because each thread will stay waiting on the accepttcpclient() command of the socket object.

I have a list of thread that i started in my main program, can i destroy each thread in the destructor ?? and if yes, how ??

In C#

For example if you socket listening codes are like this

bool flag=true;

while(flag){
     //you listening codes here
}

You can close the socket so each thread does not stay at the socket.receivedata using socket.Close()

After that you can set the flag to false and kill the threads using abort

flag = false;
myThread.Abort();

I know that it can be done like that.

But in the thread there is waited for a connection by the socket.accepttcpclient() method, so i cannot create a while loop checking a boolean, I have to somehow force the accepttcpclient to stop listening and destroy the thread, without checking a boolean in a while loop.

Any one has suggestions ?

can you place your code here

Or simply place wait at the end of your programm so that your program waits till all thread finishes

You can set the IsBackground property (of the Thread object) to true before starting the thread, background threads dont prevent the application from closing and when the application is closed the CLR will stop any running background threads automatically:
